How to Measure Your Foot

  • Place your feet flat on a piece of paper and mark your longest toe and the back of your foot. It's best to do this standing and wearing socks
  • Measure the length (cm) straight from your longest toe to the back of your foot using a ruler or measuring tape.
  • Use the chart to find your size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stylish and Comfy I absolutely love this boot! I typically border between 9.5 and 10...I went with a 10. Love it! I wanted a boot that wouldn't cramp my toes with a wool sock and it fits perfect! This boot is comfortable from the first wear. I want to re-order in Black!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad quality I was so excited to receive these boots for Christmas because they were so cute in the pictures. I went to pull them on and right away the heel strap snapped and broke. Didn't even get to wear them once. Very poor quality for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New favorite booties These are my new favorite booties! They are comfortable and a great all day shoe. The color is perfect to wear with everything, but now I want them in every color!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Found MY boot I'm a comfort-over-everything kind of girl. So when I stumbled on these cozy (yet classy!) boots, I was immediately sold. Three weeks later, it's embarrassing the number of times I've worn them. I live in Oregon where waterproof is important, but work in an office where being presentable is also important–this boot is perfect for both. Note: I got the Rockwood red color and can't stop staring them. Beautiful!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from first, yet excellent pair of Sorels I saw these boots online during the Black Friday sale, and after reading the reviews, I was thoroughly convinced to purchase them. I love them! They are more outdoorsy of a style than I am used to, but they are so comfortable. I love the footbed, and wore them immediately with complete comfort. The toe area does need to be stretched out a tad, but what a great boot!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Snug fit I was in between a 8.5 and a 9. The 9 felt loose and clunky so I went with the 8.5 but am unable to wear thick socks with the 8.5. If you plan to wear them in the winter size up!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Beautiful but HUGE These were so nice, but felt 2 sizes bigger than I ordered. I had to return them because they were so huge. I have other Sorels in a size 8, so I expected these to work. Sad. :(

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite shoe of the season! The rich color, the comfort, and the style have definitely made these the first shoe I reach for. Love to roll up my pants a bit to allow a fun sock to peak through. Considering purchasing other colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great boot! I love these boots. They work with a lot of outfits. I was a little worried how the elastic on the sides would look in person but haven’t minded it at all. They are comfortable and have worn them all day to work. I’m excited to try them once the snow comes. I originally bought a size 8 but returned them and had to order a size 8.5 from a different site as they were sold out on this site. The 8.5 were still a little tight to get on but overall fit better in the toe area. I usually wear a size 8 but in boots and narrow toed shoes I tend to buy up a half size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great short boot I like this boot so much, I bought it in two colors! It is so comfortable I can wear it all day running errands. I have had some injuries to my feet in the past so I am very picky about fit and comfort, and these fit perfectly while looking cute with my jeans.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these boots!!!! These boots are awesome! I sized up a half size to be sure I had plenty of space with thick socks! They are so comfortable right out of the box and are super stylish. I loved them so much I got two colors. I get compliments on them every time I wear them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE THESE BOOTS I have been searching for a “Chelsea” style boot for awhile when I stumbled across these. Read the reviews and decided to order them. So happy with my purchase! They are comfortable, stylish and I warm! Ordered a half size up to wear with thicker socks and even without thicker socks they are still perfect! Only took two wears to stretch them a little to fit my foot. Couldn’t be happier! Plan to order more from Sorel in the future!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fall boot! These boots are both comfortable and stylish! The shaft height of the boot is just perfect for skinny jeans. I wore them all day without any discomfort and would recommend them to anyone looking for the perfect casual fall boot!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So comfortable! I have really bad feet and struggle to find comfort that will get me through the day. I’m a teacher which make it doubly hard. These shoes are amazing! They are so comfortable that I not only stood the whole day but then was able to walk home (it’s far). I can’t remember the last time I was able to do that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Boot These boots are very comfortable and can be dressed up or down. They are perfect for the rainy Oregon weather.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great boots! Love these boots, seem true to size. The toe box is a little on the narrow side while the ankle is very wide but that fits with the style of the boot. A little slip in the heel because the ankle opening is so wide. Very cute and love that you can wear them in any weather.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE THEM!!!! This was my first Sorel purchase, and I'm so glad I did! These boots are awesome! I bought these to take to NYC to have a comfortable pair to walk in all day and also be warm and waterproof. They are so comfortable! I will say I normally wear a 7 and had to get a 7.5 because I have a wide foot. But they fit great! I got the Major, black color, and they go with pretty much anything. I will definitely be purchasing from Sorel again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this! I bought these wanting an all purpose casual boot and that is what I got. I live in a rainy climate and these boots have done great in the rain for not being “rain boots”. Plus they are super cute and go with everything!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from leather wrapped heels are not waterproof agree with other reviews on snug fit but mine did stretch to fit perfectly offering great ankle support. so warm & comfortable and I am a picky shoe buyer. main complaint is that the leather wrapped heel is NOT WATERPROOF and mine are very stained. I am surprised that I did not see anyone else comment on this. If anyone has any tips on how to remove stains or protect for the future would greatly appreciate!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great flat boot I was looking for flat everyday boots (good for running errands and commuting), which is much harder than it sounds like it should be. These boots provide support and are very comfortable. They do run a little small. (I'm normally a 7.5 with socks and am happy with the 7 here.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Fav Boots! LOVE these! I got them in Major & Black. Super durable, high traction sole, they go with most of my wardrobe, and are a great mix of function and fashion! As other reviewers said, they may be slightly snug to start, but the leather just has to expand and loosen up and then they’re great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shortie boots I enjoy wearing these booties. I can wear them with anything, they’re easy to put on, and have sleek look. They are also comfortable and keep my feet dry during the lovely autumn and winter seasons!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great walking boots These boots have been very comfortable and practical for the NW Autumn weather. I returned the Redwood color for black because the Redwood is more brown than red in my opinion. I would love if they came in a true red wine color or navy but black is ok. They are also easy to slip off & on without a struggle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Fall/Winter Boots These boots are wonderful! I live in Northern Idaho and they are perfect for fall and winter being waterproof and they are easy to take on and off. I wear them with skinny jeans and even sports leggings because they are so practical! LOVE LOVE LOVE

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Practical Bootie Super comfortable shoe. Other booties can be a little high around the ankle and these hit in just the right place, the height is perfect. Beautiful construction and waterproof is a plus!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These boots are great! I bought these boots to put a little more dressy into my casual. I found them to be exceedingly comfortable. I wore them all day the first day without aching feet. Thats saying something for me. I will be a repeat customer for sure!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like a glove These boots were exactly what I was looking for. They fit true to size were extremely comfortable the first time I wore them. They are good quality and can be worn to work or on out on a casual weekend. Great buy!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from LOVE!!!! I absolutely love this boot. I don't have any other shoes this color and its perfect. The boots are very comfy. I sized up 1/2 size to fit thicker socks, the only issue I have is at the widest part of my foot it is a smidge tight. Just like any other boot it just needs to stretch alittle with wear. It looks great with leggings and jeans rolled!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Everyday Bootie Initially it seemed small when I put it on the first time and I was considering exchanging for a half size up but many other reviews say the leather stretches out so I'm currently just wearing them around the house to see if they will stretch enough to be comfortable. Other than that they are really cute and go with practically everything. The fact that they are waterproof is amazing, especially for the rainy season where I live (most of the year). I ordered the Redwood, it was my second choice in color, I wanted the Elk originally but it was sold out in my size, but when I received the Redwood booties I noticed it was less red than I thought and more of a dark brown-ie more versatile than I originally thought colorwise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfy and Stylish The Emelie™ Chelsea Boots are great. They are easy to get into/out of - which can be a trick for someone with a taller and wider foot. These boots have a comfortable footbed and fit very well. I am breaking in the back/heel a bit as it is stiff - but not painful. I also love that these are waterproof so I can wear them anywhere. If only they had black in my size.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Purchased for Work Every pair of Sorel boots I have purchased are very high quality. These are quite stiff when new which makes them feel much smaller I have worn mine 5 or 6 days and they have loosened and softened to be more comfortable. It has already snowed in MN and I have taken these on a walk through slush and snow. They are definitely waterproof as they claim. They fit nicely under work pants to look professional and clean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First Pair or Sorels This is my first pair of Sorels and I love them! At first they fit a little snug, but as I’ve continued to wear them I find them to be fine now. I have worn them in the rain and walked through puddles and they hold up great. Definitely would recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Chelsea Fan I purchased my Chelsea boots a couple weeks ago and wasnt sure I wanted to keep them. I was looking for something durable and comfortable, but wanted them to look cute enough to dress up. I loved that these were easy on and waterproof, but they felt a little bulkier than I was used to. I decided they looked cute enough to wear to church one morning and I am glad I didnt take them back. Yesterday as we moved my granparents into their new home I tested out their waterproof claim. It was a torrential downpour day in Oregon and these boots were perfect!!! I bought these in an 8 1/2 and after they stretched out a bit after the first couple wears they are a little loose. I think I can just wear a little thicker socks to solve this problem. Just like my other Sorels, these boots are super comfortable. I am excited to have these cute and stylish boots to wear during the wet months ahead instead of always having to use my rain boots!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great boots Love my new boots. They are not for wide feet though as they are somewhat tight on width. Not uncomfortable but I'm glad I'm on the narrow side.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These boots ARE made for walking! I absolutely ADORE these boots. Not only do they look fabulous, they are also super comfy! I purchased the major/black color and they go with everything. If you are looking for a fashionable but comfortable boot, the Emelie Chelsea boot is the one for you!!! Pefect for long walks through the city. I can look stylish and be comfortable at the same time. Thank you Sorel!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Boot for Fall! Super comfortable and stylish boot for fall and winter. I chose the Redwood/black combo and they go with blue jeans really well. They look great with leggings too. I thought they'd be a little stiff at first but they weren't so that was a nice surprise because that means they are immediately wearable with no break-in period. I could probably wear a lot thicker of sock than I do - I've been wearing thinner SmartWool socks with them right now but anticipate thicker socks when winter arrives. I'm going to get a lot of wear out of these boots. If Sorel sold a tote in a matching Redwood leather I'd buy it, its a very attractive color, different and unique.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect. I was looking for a brown everyday boot and stumbled across the Emelie Chelsea boot. I am so happy I did, I absolutely love it! I work on my feet everyday, some days 10 hrs and it is great. I ordered the Elk, Cordovan and it looks just like the photo. I wear sometimes with socks and sometimes without and fits both.
